Trump did well

Weekend Herald - - Viewpoints -

Your ed­i­to­rial re­sponse to the midterm elec­tions in the United States was ju­bi­lant. But hold on. Pres­i­dents Obama and Clin­ton lost more in their mid-terms than Trump. Trump con­cen­trated on the Se­nate races, where the ju­di­cial in­flu­ence will re­side for the next few years. He also man­aged to get rid of some less than sup­port­ive Repub­li­cans.

Demo­crat stars Beto O’Rourke, Stacey Abrams and An­drew Gil­lum did not make the grade.

Con­sid­er­ing Face­book and Twit­ter bans on con­ser­va­tives it’s a won­der Trump didn’t do worse.
